Pratītyasamutpāda or The Law of Interdependence and Karuna or Compassion are two most important and profound teachings of the Buddha. Without them, Enlightenment is impossible. Law of Interdependence or Dependent Origination is a fundamental law of nature and the most subtle level of every phenomena is governed by this law. It is a realistic way of understanding the universe and is the Buddhist equivalent of Einstein's Theory of Relativity. There can be no true understanding of the Law of Interdependence withoutCompassion. It is through compassion that we become thoroughly grounded in the conventional truth and thus prepared to receive the ultimate truth.
Venerable Legtsok will elaborate more and also explain the practice points (meditations included) of these two profound topics. You may be a beginner to Buddhist philosophy or you may be an advanced student of Buddhism. No matter what your level of understanding and proficiency is, the two sessions this weekend will greatly benefit you numerous ways.
